Muslims Take Up Arms Defending Against Armed Hate Group

03 Apr

A group of white right wingers seems to have forgotten that the NOI, AKA the Black Muslims aren’t exactly a group of folks you can wave your guns at and scare.

Armed hate group met at Texas mosque protest by gun-toting worshipers

An anti-Muslim hate group planned an armed protest at an African-American mosque in Texas — but it didn’t go as planned.

The group, the Bureau of American Islamic Relations, or BAIR, has made it a habit in the past to show up at mosques with firearms and intimidate worshipers. In November, armed protesters stalked Muslims in Irving. In December, they again stalked Muslims at the Islamic Association of North Texas.

But on Saturday, the group that makes a show of carrying guns while they surround places of worship was met in-kind at a Nation of Islam mosque in South Dallas, theDallas Morning News reports.

“This is an armed defense maneuver, making sure that our communities are safe and secure from any insurgents coming in,” Krystal Muhammad of the New Black Panther Party told Fox4 last week. Muhammad was armed with a large shotgun. “We won’t allow anybody to come in and try to intimidate our brothers and sisters.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center also lists the New Black Panther Party as a hate group.

On Saturday, the BAIR showed up and was outnumbered by members of black self-defense groups, Fox4 reported.

The Nation of Islam was joined by the Panthers and the Huey P. Newton Gun Club in its defense of the mosque.

“We will not allow them to come to South Dallas with arms and intimidate our people,” Yafeuh Balogun, spokesman for the Huey P. Newton Gun Club, told Fox4 last week. “We’re taking a defensive posture, but we’re not threatening anyone.”

“It’s a people’s victory here in South Dallas today,” he said Saturday after BAIR left without incident.

    It looks as if the crap is about to hit the fan.

    Not only is Trump inspiring whites to show their a$$es, but it looks as if some blacks aren’t going to sit back and take it any more.

    Oh well lots of dead gun nuts.

      The historical precedent for white folks running around with guns is mass mayhem and murder, often of black or other minority folks. The so called “race riots” after WWI stopped shortly after black folks in DC defended themselves. Other examples included Tulsa, and Louisville. Which is why during the 60’s Hoover’s FBI attacked black militant groups. In the 60’s the scenes of the Black Panthers, and the FOI down in Georgia, as well as some individual groups of black men defending their communities did throw a wet blanket on some of the violence.

      I don’t see the pathetic Huey P Newton Gun Club doing much except providing some symbolic poses for the press, because at least in the picture, they are pathetically under armed. Through the years, I have run into black folks with Military experience and technical skills to know what they are doing, but they almost to a man stay in the background – because of the likelihood of being targeted by Law Enforcement either at the local or federal level. They are not your gangbangers, but in vast majority your working guys with families – and have no intention of attacking anyone, but every intention of protecting their families.

      With Trump hyping and encouraging greater violence, I believe minorities may indeed be facing that threat again.

        I don’t believe in guns but I have been thinking about getting one just in case things go sideways in the Gunshine State.

        I live alone so I don’t have to worry about a child picking it up or someone stealing it.
